Reminiscent of America’s old-time mercantile district, Chester is a trip down memory lane as you stroll the brick sidewalks; admire the preserved building facades and revel in the time-worn beauty that is still the very essence of ‘Main Street’. The oldest settlers in Chester Township came in 1640 when “Black River” established itself as a settlement primarily because of the intersection of two Lenape Indian trails. In the years leading to the revolution and on into the early 1800’s, Chester Township was an important stagecoach stop on the trip from New York, New Brunswick, and Morristown to Phillipsburg. In 1799, Chester Township with 30 square miles, incorporated and separated from Roxbury Township.
